The Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, has ordered an investigation into a viral video showing some police officers in Ibadan, Oyo state harassing a female suspect.

The officers had gone to the home of a suspected kidnapper and armed robber to arrest him and there they met the 25-year-old lady who gave her name as Towobola.

The policemen, after taking the kidnap suspect away, faced Towobola, handcuffed her and accused her of sleeping with the alleged kidnapper.

One of the police officers who identified himself as ‘Wyclef’, brought out his phone and started to film the Tobowola as he asked her questions about her sex life.

Wyclef in the video mocked Towobola, telling her that young ladies are fond of dating men with questionable wealth which often lands them in trouble. He stated that if he were to woo Towobola, she would not give in to his advances but would rather have sex with criminals.

He went on to ask her if she was a virgin and how many men she has slept with. Towobola said she is 25, a graduate of the University of Ibadan and had just completed her NYSC.

Reacting to the video, the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, condemned the actions of the police officers and said they would be brought to justice. The statement from the police reads

''The Inspector General of Police has ordered discreet investigations into the circumstances surrounding the dehumanizing treatment meted out to a female citizen in the above viral video.

The IGP, while condemning the act, has directed the commencement of comprehensive investigations aimed at unraveling the true identity of the perpetrators with a view to bringing them to justice.

Members of the public are hereby assured that any member of the Force found culpable in the incident will be made to face appropriate sanctions.''

WHAT THAT POLICE DID TO THAT GIRL IS NOT PART OF HIS DUTY. THE HUMILIATION AND STUPID QUESTIONING WERE NOT THE REASON THEY WERE SENT THERE.

Nothing will come out of the IGP investigation,  birds of the same feather.
What investigations are they conducting the humiliating video itself is enough evidence.

Kudos to him for capturing the criminal, but thereafter allowed the criminal’s cham to work on himself by misbehaving with questionable questions
